, bob doll will be giving us his lineup for stocks. that's coming up at 7:00 a.m. eastern time. at 8:00 eastern, a cnbc exclusive. david tepper, one of the world's top performing hedge fund managers will join us to give us some of his wisdom in a kaerc t can't-miss interview. a lot to talk about with him. in the meantime, why don't we get to some of today's top stories. we could see some movement in the fiscal cliff negotiations. house speaker boehner offering to raise the top tax rates on those making over $1 million a year as well as other measures amounting to $1 trillion in new revenue. that's in exchange for an equal amount in spending cuts. the white house has not yet accepted the proposal. >>> also, apple says it has sold more than 2 million in iphone 5s in china just over the last three days. that's the best ever debut for the iphone line in china. apple is china's second biggest market, although it did lose a lot of market share while they were waiting for that i5 to come out. and citi research has downgraded apple from a hold to a buy. you can see there just below $500. >>
's the chief of staff to governor bob macdonald. to denise northrop came from state of oklahoma where she is chief of staff to governor mary phalen and roxanne white is joining us from the great state of colorado where she's chief of staff to governor john hicken looper. and so their full bios are on the pamphlets and nare all very accomplished professionals in their careers. i'm going to ask roxanne to start and we can come down this way. >> great. first, thank you for the report. i think it provides a good framework for all of us as states to continue to look at the challenges facing us. we have been engaged in pension reform in colorado. our pension fund is about 69% solvent. we did major reform in the last administration. and we are now in court trying to defend that reform. our pension costs by 2020 will go to 22%. and so to give you a sense of how far behind we were as a state, if we lose in court and the battle is whether or not we as a state have a right to ratchet down the colas for our state employees, then we could see a need to go to 25% of compensation by 2020. so it's fairly
president, and like bob lovett, david bruce, smart guys, warn him, you got a problem here, and he says, you know, and you ought to get rid of dallace. he's the brother of john foster, secretary of state, but more important, really, he says it takes a strange kind of genius to run and intelligence service, and he's right about that, and allen did have a strange genius so ike was reluctant to get rid of them, begs to question to replace with whom? he did. i think he regretted it. john eisenhower told me that after the u2 was shot down, he went to his father on the plane to the paris summit about to collapse, the paris summit, and said to him, dad, you should have fired that guy, and ike blew up and basically said i'm the president of the united states, but it was a little defensive about it because, you know, he probably should have gotten rid of dulles. they are clearer in retrospect than they are at the time. ike was a great manager, but he was arguably a little slow to get rid of people. i think not in world war ii, no problem with sacking generals in world war ii, but maybe a little slow
we just heard from kenny and from bob. kenny, you were shaking your head, so angry at what is going on down there. the mark set telling them to get to work. and it's ridiculous, nothing is happening. >> i think the mark set tired of giving them a free pass. i think the last couple weeks, the market has been giving them room to negotiate. i think after what we saw last night, the mark set disgusted as it rightly should be, as our investors. >> thank you. sorry. >> i think this story today that they are trying to say this is strategic on boehner's part. i'm scratching my head. what is strategic in grand standing about how to pass it. then pulling out because he had no support at all. then today the senator saying, they misunderstood. what did they misunderstand? >> yeah. i think the important thing -- by the way, john harwood is hysterical describing what happened. that perfect. there are people trying to buy the lows of the day right after the open. remember this is quadruple witching. so there is a lot of volume down here. now we are essentially sitting a lows of the day. as we brea
on the state department during a time of fiscal austerity. host: here is a follow-up from senator bob corker who will take over as the ranking republican in the senate foreign relations committee in the 113th congress. [video clip] >> you were fully aware and either you send people there with a security or you send them there. i don't understand why you did not send a notification out, but the cables coming in, with concerns about security, why didn't you do just what you did with this -- seeking additional funds? i did not understand. the appropriations committee has never received from the state department a notification asking to shift funds for security in benghazi. i just want you to tell me why that didn't happen. you do it all the time. it happens almost weekly. >> senator, as you know, we are constantly evaluating our security posture. we are constantly reevaluating where we need funds. and we are constantly by winning the current situation on the ground in all of our countries. as you are well aware, we have risks all over the world and we are constantly evaluating and determining -
, bob. we did. got it. >>> well, washington's division and dysfunction threatened our economic recovery, some american cities are working their way back after decades of tough times. recently, i traveled to youngstown, ohio, and caught a glimpse of hope deep in the rust belt. >> this is your father's first restaurant? >> the first one. >> what street was it, do you remember? >> wick avenue. >> wick avenue. >> my grandmother's lived in youngstown, ohio, for more than 95 years. >> yes, i've seen it in many different phases. my grandfather came here from greece. he opened a restaurant, the american dream. >> but he taught himself english. he taught himself to read the newspaper, and he became a very successful businessman. as he would say, only in america. youngstown was prosperous, and downtown youngstown was really prosperous. it was wonderful to go to downtown youngstown and be all dressed up in gloves and hat and going in and out of the shops and having lunch downtown. it was exciting. >> but that prosperity didn't last. youngstown ohio was the manufacturing backbone of this country bu

, thank you. jon: more on this with republican senator bob corker. he was opposed to ambassador rice's possible nomination and joins us now. so she has withdrawn her name for consideration. does that in any way change the investigation into what happened in benghazi, senator? >> oh, i don't think so. i think certainly susan rice had nothing to do with the security. i think most of us just thought that she was a little bit more of a political operative than she was a principal and had concerns about her service. i never thought she was going to be appointed, by the way, or at least i haven't for some time because i think the white house was able to see the reception that she got there. but, look, benghazi, i was able to yesterday see the footage from the drone as far as what happened on the ground. i was able to also see from security cameras the groups that were coming in. i do think that we will continue -- there's no question we're going to continue to force a look at the security measures there because the way folks were able to come into our compound with such ease in an area tha
we are getting, you're going to hear from senator bob corker, republican from tennessee, his big point is insisting that hillary clinton still testify about what happened there. and then senator john kerry, who believes based on the report that you read, that the department of state has already taken a number of steps forward in a positive way. first corker, then kerry, reaction now. >> there is no question that there were people within the state department that were remiss and did not execute in an appropriate way. there are also some cultural issues, and, i mean, there were no doubt numbers of problems. and i would just say to that end, i know that secretary clinton was unable to be able to testify tomorrow in an open setting. i do think it's imperative for all concerned that she testify in an open session prior to any changing of the regime. >> i think the department has taken a huge step forward to address the lessons learned from benghazi, which are important to everybody. you know, there are 70,000 employees over there. there are 275 different posts. people are at risk, it'

in herndon is here to talk to us about the consequences for small businesses. bob. [applause] hello -- >> hello. i own an embroidery franchise out in herndon, va., and we work for small businesses, schools, corporations. i'm happy to be here today to talk to you about the fiscal cliff and how it might affect my business. i am mostly optimistic about our economy in the future, i have grave concerns about what is going on in congress and the potential fiscal cliff we are facing and the elimination of the tax cuts. a lot of the small business owners i talked to and know are in favor of keeping the tax cuts in place especially for the middle class. we believe in balanced approach and we think it's ok to allow the elimination of the tax cuts for the wealthy. as taxes increase, the taxes at my business will be effected and i will have less to pay for investments and new equipment, hiring new people, but personally my income tax rates will go up. it's already a financially constrained environment. but customers tax rates will go up creating less demand for my products and less revenue for
of congress, my late husband, bob matsui, worked closely with senator inouye on the movement for japanese american redress and reparations. together with colleagues, they helped secure a formal government apology for innocent japanese americans who were victims of one of our country's darkest moments. it would be impossible to find a stronger voice for our nation's veterans than senator inouye. he was instrumental in getting the congressional gold medal awarded to several military units from world war ii, units who were composed almost entirely of persons of japanese ancestry and exhibited exceptional bravery on the battlefield. while their own families were in internment camp here's at home. earlier this year, i worked closely with senator inouye to ensure that the congressional gold medal toured the country so everyone could have the opportunity to learn about the bravery and heroism of these veterans. this is the type of man senator inouye was. he was a man who up to the very end worked tirelessly to bring recognition to those who deserve it the most. north inouye devoted his life to s
